tv Headline News RT October 27, 2017 2:00am-2:30am EDT
we are apparently better than blue. sea people you've never heard of. jack tonight president of the world bank very. seriously send us an e-mail. at nine am from moscow twitter r t blocking are at the cannes in the latest attack on russian media. coming up today a big day for catalonia the spanish senate set to vote on whether or not would trade will take back direct rule of the region as the cattle and president rules out a snap election themself. and the multibillion dollar cyber security industry could be about to double in value in the coming years under the constant threat of the internet where.
live from h.q. moscow this is our team with me kevin i would for a good morning for me thanks for watching us first than in the u.s. sorry the news this morning already that the right way or twitter is blocked this channel from advertising on its platform an unprecedented in out of the blue move to be clear it doesn't affect news feed you can still follow that hawkins will tell you. a story worth the plot thickens and develops almost weekly r.t. has received notification from twitter it began positively we believe in freedom of expression and in speaking truth to power it ended ironically with the news that all of the accounts on our brand from advertising any content on the social media platform twitter has made policy decision to all of board advertising from all accounts owned by russia today and sputnik according to twitter r.t. on behalf of the russian government attempted to interfere in the us elections as
claimed by the us intelligence report back in january twenty seventh team no clear accusations of wrongdoing misconduct or breach of policy now this turn of events is almost comical given that last year twitter offered to deliver an unbiased point of view of the us elections through an exclusive ad campaign aimed to promote artie's election coverage and bring it to a wider american audience ortiz released some details of the election collaboration offer to provide a clearer picture now this special offer included many features from customize the mode you hashtags to analytics and research solutions even a dedicated team of twitter experts to help with media strategy now this had the specific aim of having a bigger reach to american voters and viewers why would twitter have offered this to a kremlin propaganda tool seeking to control the election after the negotiations r.t. didn't take up the offer because of the hefty price tag it went over all social
media budgets what happened over the last year and a half how has r.t.e. gone from trusted media partner to being on par with mysterious russian bots and trolls here are the facts r t never violated any rules while advertising on twitter r.t. has never dealt with and will never deal with bartz or any other compromise tools on any soche. media platform r t has never spread any sort of deliberate misinformation if this had not been the case r t would have been banned by any social media platform in question as all of them have strict rules for policy violations however twitter included this channel in their report russian interference in the twenty sixth elections it even went as far as releasing confidential information on adverts spending on the platform a marketing strategy used by most international news outlets by the way in this day and age but again no proof of real misconduct the unprecedented actions of twitter
might end up backfiring for all media outlets as artie's editor in chief has warned honestly i didn't believe that twitter was controlled by american security services it looked like a conspiracy theory to me but twitter has just been fast it's a pity especially because american news outlets operating in russia will now feel the tenderness of russian tit for tat measures in the twitter officials will testify before congress on russian election meddling no doubt r.t. will be given a mention and while we're happy we've played by twitter's rules can twitter say they've avoided by the very principles of free expression they say they believe in in response wiki leaks founder julian assange is calling on her to be more transparent and release details of all ads placed by media and nonprofit organizations he's not alone the journalist behind the n.s.a. whistleblower scandal glenn greenwald two questions whether twitter had made the
same move if there were complaints against u.s. government linked groups targeting ads abroad a good question artie's had the social media told andrew farmer about how two of his decisions come as a really disappointing shock here. we've never broken a rule on that and i dare say given the climate in america right now how do our team broken a rule would be very quick to hear about iraq now but we haven't quite clearly and both it seems to me like that there's a certain desire to squeeze us a little bit in terms of you know how to reach across the digital they've never really expressed concern about the content or any of these concerns that they've expressed today no there were there's been no can no expressions of concern about our content on the contrary you know we've always tried to be very innovative digital publisher it's it's really surprising. unfortunate that they've decided in this decision unilaterally to prevent us from campaigning but in my opinion it speaks it speaks more to the kind of level hysteria level of hysteria that's in
america from our point of view as a really important part from for us we certainly deeply regret it we're shocked by it we deeply regret that you know we could've spoken about this before hundred he's given given each other some heads up and you know quite clearly adamantly you know stand our ground in terms of the integrity and the quality of the products that we publish on a platform we're bloody good at this is a deliberate move to get everybody off of what's happening right now to the hillary clinton f.b.i. investigation everybody's favorite now let me get this straight r.t. buys it ads or ads ok like the world does what did these ads do did they survive the election did they cause or were they evidence of or in d.c. of colucci did what pray tell did these ads are complex they made
americans. i think and maybe caused curiosity dissension perhaps and that was the collodion so that's a great move for freedom of speech way to go twitter it's discussed. all the move against. describes which the russian foreign ministry last month and been a number of moves the gathering pace it seems the us justice department demand of the dati american register under the cold war era foreign agents act moscow said if that's going to happen that's going to result in serious legal consequences then google removed r t u chub premium advertising service in the u.s. without any prior notice the attacks against this channel started after january's u.s. intelligence report on alleged russian meddling is never been any solid proof of anything that r.t. influence the us election back in twenty sixteen despite these ongoing flurry of
attacks in congress but one propaganda machine contributed to the influence campaign by serving as a platform for criminal messaging using russian government funded outlets russian propaganda media outlets like r t i think it's a propaganda arm of government that is definitely not on our side reports have it that russia not only wanted to weigh in in the election with they also want to undermine u.s. confidence the citizens confidence in our electoral process and in our democratic values the experts we talked to believed might have been pressured into making a move against us. it's them trying to curry favor with congress before having to go before congress and i know this is coming from from from from some sector in the government we just don't know which one yet that's the issue right now and i think that when the hearings take place and twitter comes up and has to explain this and they're going to come up and say hey look what we did now leave us
alone it's not they're not going to leave them alone they're going to push them even more so when the hearings take place i think we're going to find out who behind the scenes is done this again it's probably within the american intelligence community but it definitely is pressure it's just the question is from what area of the government is it coming from of course it's not a coincidence i mean the smearing the count smears showing clinton and trump i mean it's just another go not just of bashing out a but bashing of russia as well i don't lot of people they look at the social media accounts like twitter and facebook and instagram and somehow believe that these are the past years of free speech but we're increasingly seeing sentient if anybody dead told how to gain stem mainstream narrative so i understand where this attack is now come on and i can see what r.t. have done wrong to the problem at the moment is the the new age oligarchy to run twitter and facebook and the other accounts the problem is they all powerful all
the advertising has gone away from print away from full gas a lot of it has gone to the site so they are all powerful and well you've gone now especially say for example of facebook where most of them but there's even rumors he might want to run for president of the united states we get this unholy alliance between the fourth the state machine the press and the people and politicians it's not a good and it's not a healthy relationship. as a so developed so the day will tell you but if this is going to kick of two we think spain's senate is set for a key vote on the escalating catalonia crisis leighton's day the government could decide to take back direct rule of the breakaway region and becomes of the council and president yesterday decided against calling a snap election. more than willing to put forward an election as long as there's a go and see people a day to them treated with respect there's been no such guarantee today more than
three weeks after going to the polls catalans remain in limbo many had expected decisive action from the catalan president instead he handed the final say to the we channel parliament that sparked a wave of criticism on social media. care on the streets of boston learned the reaction was movie tickets i think that he did make the right yes i stand right now we only have one option that these
declared independence disappointed. because i think that it's new it's. no use to wait more time to declare independence sometimes we have to wait for the good things to come and i thing today is are they to take take things calmly what we expect is republic the catalan parliament is due to vote on friday and so much waiting there is a call for just to be any easy insights but what the catalan did was quite a clever move with the current president the. clever move because we devolved the decision to move the cattle in parliament. now you know there is a pro independence majority there so obviously that points in one clear direction that probably you will have
a vote in favor of an attorney but he warns that when that happens the violence witnessed by many during the referendum could be repeated things might get very ugly here with the repression of the spanish government we are a peaceful people we are a civic we are for so obviously you can expect some massive resistance from the catalan people because we are very proud nation now we're not more than any other nation but we're not less than any other nations we have our rights we have the right of self-determination we are going to support we're going to defend our rights no matter where the final independence decision is taken all senators in madrid will also be voting but on article one fifty five if that is implemented it will impose direct rule on catalonia
a move which was once described as an atomic bomb by a spanish former foreign minister so if the catalan republic is declared independent it may not have time to get on the map as a softened state. barcelona and there's a ripple effect across the border to the south of france let me tell you about that votes were plenty of support for cutler the president says there's a reason for it for centuries the region was in fact part of catalonia it ceded to france in the seventeenth century but is still no this northern catalonia with its own regional language and dialect is what locals there than at the same potential independence and this push for it now over the border. so what's happening is very serious and sadly our fund elected representatives say much of this. passage was boring for people who claim to be democratic. nations and will collect
a large sum of money of course but this is only the beginning we also want to show that we are here to tell our friends in the south don't worry you're not alone. when there is an oppressor and oppressed those who say nothing to give their press their power we want our representatives and our parliamentarians to come forward and to clearly say who they support nine fifteen in the morning this friday here in moscow for a good morning for me then thanks for watching all the way why there's a sinister side to the internet you should know more about and also why it's hard to tell red from blue in u.s. politics these days it's all coming up. in case you're new to the game this is how it works the economy is built around corporate corporations from washington to washington the media the media
the. voters elect the businessman to run this country business because. it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done. for over a year we have heard nonstop but somehow in some way trump colluded with russia to win the presidential election so we have yet to see the evidence of this however it appears more likely it was the democratic party the difficult. anyone and you go there resist the american design is a. terrorist. in the. model that has been happening with. the.
internet so long of course had a sinister side which ever experienced but which could be of concern to anyone who gets online it's called the web. this is just. securing information held online is an endless battle of course with cyber crime having rocketed in recent years it's still the cost to countering it could double over the next five years to it's going to get worse sob security expert barry spillman explains some of the dangers lurking out there on this web. the dark web has become a place where a lot of very bad things are going on over there it wasn't always that way and it
wasn't meant to be that way the dark web was a set up a originally by the united states navy to be used as a place for dissidents or people in third world countries who want to have connections with the outside world or to provide privacy and anonymity but the problem is is that the dark web has been hijacked by bad people because of the same reasons that it's providing that same anonymity and basically today you have tremendous amounts of cyber crime that are being run off in the dark where different sites different forums marketplaces reflect like look like amazon where they actually selling things broken down into categories and i say selling things i mean everything you can possibly imagine drugs weapons pornography all the bad things you can imagine. it's also a place that is beginning to threaten organizations because if someone is breached and there's large data breaches this information can find its way for sale on the dark web or just the density of people being stolen whether it's students at
a university whether it's the medicare program in australia which we brits recently saw a dark way a cyber intelligence company is a company like ours six kill that basically is analyzing information that's on the dock where and other sources like the deep web and basically providing a threat intelligence picture of the different threats that are out there and these different in these areas. picking which party to back in the united states used to be pretty straightforward choice but now it was more than a few republican senators vocally turning against their own president and sounded more like democrats by the sounds of it it's getting tougher kellam opens but now to new york to play spot the republican. in the usa it's coke or pepsi mcdonald's or burger king and we all know in politics it's democrats or republicans but now we've got three out of those who don't exactly fit these categories you know you would think he would aspire to be the president united states and act like
a present united states but you know there's just not going to be the case apparently a democrat sounds like a democrat democrat so that i was actually senator corker a republican. say something like that to abandon the idea as we have advanced around the globe to really use the up gauge of international leadership and our duty to remain the last especially. for the sake of some a half they sure is nation against republican and you're correct that john mccain a republican we must stop pretending that the dick degradation of our politics and the conduct of saddam and our executive branch are normal they are not normal reckless outrageous and undignified behavior has become excused and countenanced as telling it like it is. when it is actually just reckless outrageous and dignified and dignified democrat actually that's a relief when they might sound like members of our classic democrats attacking
trump but these are republican senators at least for the moment now at least two of them say that they're not planning to run for reelection well there seems to be a falling out within the republican party but they're not democrats so where do they fit into their new third party well they certainly have political weight i don't know if they have the popularity to form a third party of three represent the paul six of the old republican guard the establishment republican party and they see the writing on the wall and frankly there's no future for them in the republican party as it is being led by president trump they can say what they want to about the president but they can't they can't win elections and that's why they're winning and i think senator corker and now senator flake see not really you know if they do decide to run for reelection they would probably would they were facing a primary opponent and they would probably lose the election so at this point the u.s. senate has fifty two republicans forty six democrats plus two independents who caucus
with the democrats so three republican senators marching to their own drumbeat isn't a small matter last july they played a decisive role in defeating republicans health care bill intended to overturn obamacare. now it's worth noting that both the weekly standard and the national review both of them ideological voices of neoconservatism are with the senators and against the president and they've even got a popular hash tag alert the day care staff so these anti trump republicans may be leaving the senate but until they do they're making sure trump doesn't get his own way. art see new york the trump ministration and choose to a hundred congress a list of are. company is no good as ations that might fall on the new u.s. sanctions list in cities list sensitives from russia's intelligence services and the military industry such is the federal security service foreign intelligence
service and the defense manufacture a kalashnikov a new sanctions bill was passed in july to punish russia for its supposed aggression in eastern europe and alleged interference in the us election the list appeared after pressure from congress which accused the administration of failing to enforce the measures adopted against moscow as well campaigner richard becker explains to us why he thinks the latest targets were chosen. i think that they're showing hostility toward russia and that they see russia which i think would probably be considered the second military power in the world as a as an obstacle to a strategy of global domination which is shared by the top levels of both the democratic and the republican parties and those who are behind them as well in the ruling circles of the united states so i don't think it's a coincidence that they decided to name all of these defense and intelligence
organizations companies and branches of the russian government because they see those as as as the main problem that the u.s. and its nato allies face in this global strategy the news for now by the way with a nod to main story today the two to clamp down on us it's important to point because still on twitter if you want to follow is for the news that days nothing's changed there as they will bring up speed as such for. or any of our correspondents then after that but you'll focus on the times could snow you the i'm kevin allen thanks what she is this morning but with more and.
the banks. here's what people have been saying about rejected in the us in the long austin the only show i go out of my way to launch you know what we want to do is the really packed a punch oh yeah it's the john oliver of party americans do the same we are apparently better than booth best. to see people you've never heard of love redacted tonight was the president of the world bank hey i'm going to write me seriously send us an email. under margaret thatcher there was
a transition away from public housing and government assisted government underwritten public housing and they sold off all the council estates. people bought into the units across the country and they became the land owning the new land owning neoliberal gentrification under the current government in the u.k. it's another socialist scheme of government underwriting property but not for the poor people they do it for the rich people. but also. to the ship. just to prove and a fairly strong one there were two thousand. in this study it's a very extensive study done by a well respected scientists. do chemicals that the advertising. really
increase the risk of cancer and i chose a means of known to use them in the launch into. skepticism they do not believe that this is is true by independent scientists need. this. compensation for my time as was the others one. is that the meat lobby definitely do like what we've been doing and if you want to learn more you'll get a. lot of. big business against. all.
welcome to. not say as the taliban gains more ground in afghanistan their road ahead for the government in kabul becomes more treacherous what can i get just as neighbors to to help will ask former chief of the pakistani intelligence service. despite years of need to operations against them entirely bomb still pose a deadly threat in afghanistan and with american troops staying put after promises of a total pull out the chances of talks between the warring factions in the country are getting slimmer regional powers like pakistan use their influence to turn the tide of the conflict isn't going to sound becoming a just board rivalries are being played out in washington's new policy be any difference. in the it's so great to have the best of our program one more time.
